Virat Kohli was happy after Mumbai Indians send them to bat first and Josh Philippe (33) and Padikkal (74) gave them a fine start with a 71-run opening stand in just 7.5 overs. But once Philippe fell to Rahul Chahar, RCB failed to score regular boundaries. Captain Kohli failed to rotate the strike and was out trying to pull a bouncer from Jasprit Bumrah, who recorded a milestone of becoming the third-fastest to reach 100 IPL wickets and also the first Indian pacer to complete 200 wickets in T20 cricket.
Bumrah continued his spell and removed Shivam Dube and Padikkal in one over swinging the match completely in favour of Mumbai Indians. RCB finished at 164/6 in 20 overs. The defending champions then started well with Quinton de Kock (18) and Ishan Kishan (25) before Suryakumar Yadav finished it for them with an unbeaten 79 off just 43 deliveries. His innings was studded with 10 boundaries and three sixes.
